    Is it those cheap Non-AF extension tube?

    There a small catch on the extension itself. Use your thumb press, pull back & at the same time twist the extension tube.

    Try ... again, but this time, REVERSE the lens towards the 'LOCK' position, PRESS down and WHILE DEPRESSING unlock the lens.

    CHEERS!

    Possibly. Since we do not know exactly which type of lens and extension tube are concerned, we won't know how it works.

    Other ways to try, if ever you have a stuck macro extension or teleconverter tube is to gently force the pin down .. unless the entire pin is completely broken off and there's virtually nothing that a jeweler's screwdriver could latch onto.
